Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this cinema 4d class:

Easy to use and extremely powerful, Cinema 4D is a leading software in 3D animation and modeling used in film, television and video game creation and design. 

By learning to work with basic primitives, polygons, splines, textures, lights, cameras and dynamic animation, users can advance their production work into a full 3D modeling interface. Because of it’s seamless integration with After Effects, VFX artists now have a full 3D modeling application at their fingertips, through the Cineware pipeline. 

Through our two-day course, students will learn the fundamentals of getting started with Cinema 4D and appreciate how user-friendly and fun it is to create realistic 3D images and objects.  Though Cinema 4D is a robust program, the basics will become a solid foundation to creating actual 3D geometry and using it in professional projects.  Through a series of in-class demonstrations, supervised activities and open play, students will learn not only how to navigate through the program but how to push the limit of their creative visions into rendered 3D scenes. 

Who this class is for:

The course is structured for VFX artists and editors who want to get an introduction into 3D object and models in their video work.

  • Understand the basics of navigating Cinema 4D and manipulating primitive objects

  • Modeling and deforming objects based on reference images 
  • Working with textures and lights to create realistic models 
  • Animating 3D scenes with keyframes and cameras
